Big Chevy Oil choices
I was considering changing to a synthetic oil. I keep hearing some very different ideas on the subject. This is for my bracket car. 454+30 12.8 CR, roller etc. What do you guys use on your race motors?

Joe Gibbs XP3 is worth some H.P. over the Penn oil,usually 2-2.5% on my dyno.Bill

Didn't the BRAD PENN oil come outta MADONNA about 15years ago?

If you can't find BRAD PENN in your area BRAD PENN has a website and if you contact them they will tell you where to get some.

>Billhendren... please don't take this the wrong way, I am not insulting you, or the product that you suggested in any way, but I wouldn't judge an oil by what the dyno says , if I put brake fluid in a motor and it gained on a dyno doesn't mean that I would run it in my race car, what good is an extra couple of horsepower if the bearings don't live? Friends of mine and I run Brad Penn in blown alcohol and blown nitro cars with excellent results.

>alscoupe.... That was SHAWN PENN! hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!
